Prior to the construction of the Makran Coastal Highway in 2004, the port city of Karachi was linked to the port town of Gwadar via an uncarpeted “jeep” or “dirt” track. The journey between Karachi and Gwadar used to take at least two days and took a heavy toll on the “wear and tear” of vehicles. It was considered preferable to take the safer but longer route via Quetta.
